Irish Whiskey Society

I've been too overwhelmed with work recently to tend to Irish Whiskey Notes. But I haven't neglected whiskey - I have been actively involved in the setting up of the Irish Whiskey Society, in particular its website.

We have had three meetings to date and have sampled some very interesting whiskeys already. A formal committee has been nominated whose immediate task will be to file the legal papers, set up the bank account and start raking in the membership dues.

Everyone, member or not, is welcome to join the developing discussion on the forum (kudos to IrishWhiskeyChaser who is taking the admin lead over there). I am amazed by the depth of knowledge of Irish whiskey among some of the society members and now that expertise is on tap in the forum. I expect to learn a lot hanging out there.
